They Said Aye To The People's Declaration

Today at Blog House, all the representatives of the People's Front, comprising of PKR, MDP, PAS, and DAP had officially endorsed and said aye to the proposed People's Declaration.

The People's Declaration is a joined manifesto that is written on behalf of the people to the potential election candidates. The declaration calls for the end of corruption, bringing back the real freedom of democracy, eradicate poverty and so on. The declaration, with the initiative by lawyer Haris Ibrahim is based on the 1999 Opposition manifesto and on the gathering, the opposition front has spoken with approval of the endorsement of the document. Much of their own party's manifesto is largely based on the declaration document mentioned.

Representatives who appeared today include PKR's Wee Choo Keong, Nurul Izzah Anwar, Badrul Hisham (Chegubad), PAS' Dr. Siti Mariah and DAP's Ronnie Liu. The other two parties, PSM and PASOK, a BN component party in Sarawak confirmed their endorsement but could not make it for today's meet. Only the Barisan Nasional has yet to endorse this document.

"Today the People are The Boss."

Special Call for People in Ipoh Timur:

Just to help you out guys in the same territory as I do.

Please do get a copy of the People's Voice and the People's Declaration (in Chinese, Malay and English format) if you have not done so. By looking at the documents, it represents the actual intentions that a citizen wish for without fear of reprimanding. Perhaps it will change your perception of what is actually happening in the country right now. Depending on the outcome of tomorrow's nomination, you might want to meet with the potential MPs, with Lim Kit Siang as one of them if confirmed of defending and the MCA rep. Show them these two documents and ask whether they will endorse it or not. If for some reason that the candidates do not approve of it, Haris has asked those who do so, please get their reasons of refusal and their names and send it via e-mail at thepeoplesparliament@gmail.com as soon as possible.

If you have friends / relatives staying there as well, please do spread the word out there. If we want to have a better lifestyle and hate how the country is heading right now, then it's time to change things! And actions of one person will spark the whole thing.
